Easy Soup Recipe for Cabbage Soup

Meatless Monday

Lately I seem to be on a cabbage kick. Cabbage Stir Fry, Pork Cottage Roll (with cabbage), and yesterday I made cabbage soup. It was one of those soups where you walk into your kitchen, look in the cupboards, look in the fridge, and throw this and that into a pot, and hope that it is edible. Hubby asked if he could have what was left tonight with dinner. I guess he liked it.

Here's how I made Cabbage Soup.

This will feed 6-7 people a large bowl of soup.
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 1 hour and 40 min.


  • 1/2 of a large green cabbage chopped
  • 1 box of chicken broth (900 ML) or just under 4 cups    
  • 4 cups of water
  • 4 tsp. of chicken broth powder
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced and chopped fine
  • 1 cup of dry soup mix rinsed 
  • 3 large carrots chopped
  • 2 good pinches of dried thyme
  • 4 dashes of hot sauce
  • fresh ground pepper

Let's Get Cooking

  1. In a large pot or dutch oven heat the chicken broth and water bring to a boil.
  2. Add the chicken broth powder and stir well.
  3. Add the dry soup mix, stir, cover and let simmer for an hour.
  4. Add the thyme, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic.
  5. Add the onions and carrots.
  6. Cover the pot and let all this cook for 20 minutes.
  7. Add the cabbage, stir the soup, and cook for an additional 15 - 20 minutes.
  8. Serve with extra hot sauce for those that like it spicier. 
  9. ENJOY!


  1. To make this a 100% vegetarian soup simply use vegetable broth rather than the chicken broth.

  2. It sounds and looks wonderful. Know my must have meat to eat husband won't enjoy it as much ad I will!! Goo.g out to buy that head I'd cabbage..I have everything else.

  3. Just a couple of weeks ago, I made a very cabbage heavy vegetable soup. It was the first time I'd cooked with cabbage in almost a year and it reminded me how tasty the simple vegetable can be.

  4. Natasha, I make coleslaw all the time and usually once or twice a year cabbage rolls. I just recently discovered how much my family enjoys cabbage made all different ways so I've been cooking with it a lot lately.
